What Is Dynamic Difficulty in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

If you’re hoping to flex your combat muscle, then Dynamic Difficulty is going to be the difficult setting for you. Rather than the game being stuck at a standard Easy or Difficult mode, Dynamic Difficulty is going to fluctuate while you play, changing things up while you’re in the middle of combat. As you continue to evolve in your combat potential, the game will continue to ramp up the difficulty to make every battle feel as epic as it should; it will also dip into a downward trend if you’re having an issue with your current battles. Everybody has an off day, you know?

Should You Play Dynamic Difficulty For Your First Playthrough in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth?

If you’re looking to push yourself to the limit or don’t plan on going through for another playthrough, then Dynamic Difficulty may be the perfect option. However, if you want to get through the story and get your wits about you while trying to remember the Remake storyline, we would recommend playing through the game on a different difficulty option first and then going back into the game for another playthrough on Dynamic Difficulty later.

Can You Change Your Difficulty While Playing Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth?

If you’ve started a game on Dynamic Difficulty and find it to be a bit too brutal for your tastes, you can always change your difficulty while playing Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. To do this, you’ll want to bring up the Pause Menu, head to System and select Options. From here, select Gameplay, and you’ll find yourself able to change the difficulty to whatever option you may need. Now you’ll be ready to enjoy everything that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth offers you.
